    I recently saw a report saying that Research in Motion missed expectations this last quarter and that the stock had been pummeled as a result. I just wanted to say I bought my first Blackberry ever last quarter. I love my new blackberry. I plan to use this platform as long as I need a mobile email client. In other words I'm a crack berry addict for life. Take that wall street!

    Hmmm. Yes, I was thinking somewhere along these lines, too. My Blackberry is the best phone I ever had, and I can't forsee myself buying any other phone, but I wonder if too much hype might lead to unneccessary expansion. I think of Krispy Kreme donuts ... When it came to my area, there was so much hype, public company and all. Krispy Kreme donuts are good -- I would still buy them and eat them occasionally, if available -- but the stores are gone.

    RIM is a great company, in fact it is the fastest growing company out there. RIMM is considered one of the 5 golden stocks so when there's a downturn investors go to stocks like RIMM for growth return. When a company such as this one misses expectations even by a penny, the stock will be driven down at least 5 %. and by this point investors most likely have put options on the stock. Even after a 17.036% loss in the last couple days, RIMM is up 69.81% YTD (Year to Date). At any rate, bberries are beloved devices and i like most of you, swear by them.

    In this economic climate the smallest ripple has a profound effect on the said stock. RIM is a wall street sweetheart for now anyway.

    RIM missed expectations that were based on what they had put out there last quarter. Companies that do that see their stocks punished. Just the way it works.
